'his book contains an exclusive selection of small 
homes at moderate costs, especially designed by competent architects of 
outstanding skill and reputation in the field of small home architecture. 

The homes illustrated present a wide range of exceedingly attractive 
architectural styles, each one possessing originality and charm and in full 
keeping, with the trend of small home architecture of today. 

They were chosen because of their architectural merit as reflected in 
beauty of appearance, and because they attain the utmost in interior con- 
veniences and general living comforts. 

In addition to their graceful and most pleasing architectural lines and 
up-to-date practical floor arrangements, every home has been carefully 
planned to provide the ultimate in sound construction and economy, thereby 
insuring lasting satisfaction and investment values. 

All of us at one time or another, give thought to the desirability of owning 
a home, because of the added pleasure and security home ownership brings. 
If you are one so thinking we urge that you think decisively on the subject 
while existing circumstances relating to new home building are so greatly 
in your favor. 

At no time since the first American home was built has it been so easy 
for the average family, or man of small means-from the standpoint of finance 
and other favorable conditions, to build a good new' home on terms now pos- 
sible. Truly this is a day of opportunity for the home builder. 

Our architects have prepared complete working plans and specification 
forms for each of the homes herein displayed, but in the home you select 
some change may be desired and if so the plans can be altered at a very low 
cost to meet your ideas. For full information see pages 44 and 45. 

It would be a real pleasure to assist you to acquire a home of your own 
and in that connection to furnish complete information regarding materials 
labor cost, or an estimate of cost and other data required for any home in 
which you might be interested. 

We can be of very definite service to you in explaining all details of 
construction and other features in the home of your choice. Our broad exper- 
ience and knowledge of materials, trade conditions and finance will be of the 
greatest help and value to you. 

We want you to know that you may discuss any phase of home building 
including finance, with us most freely for we welcome such discussions with 

?f U tn£SS S 'T UranCG ^ th9 ^ WiU not entail an ^ obligation on your part 
If interested phone, or write, or better still come in and see us.

the same time contain all the elements of good design and charm. For those 
who would have a distinctive and modern home, either plan is heartily rec- 
ommended.

AN ACCURATE WORKING PLAN 

IS THE FIRST ESSENTIAL IN THE BUILDING OF YOUR HOME 



17. 



he first requisite in the erection of a home 
is a set of complete and accurate plans. This prac- 
tice is universally accepted and is a most important 
and fundamental method adhered to by experienced 
builders. It is essential, safe, and economical to first 
construct the house on paper. Accurate plans and 
specifications must be submitted to the Federal Hous- 
ing Administration for their approval when you apply 
for an 80 percent insured mortgage loan on a new 
home. 

EXPERIENCED DESIGNERS 

Years of experience in house planning and construc- 
tion and an architectural department composed of 
skilled draughtsmen, architects, and engineers, are 
the elements upon which plans of the utmost accu- 
racy and completeness in regard to design, strength 
and ability, and comfort and home conveniences, are 
created. These specimen working drawings illustrate 
the craftsmanship and completeness of our plans. 

BLUE PRINT PLANS 
Our blue print plans include the following complete 
drawings for each design: 

Basement or foundation plan, first floor plan, second 
floor plan, front elevation, right side elevation, left side 
elevation, rear elevation, sections and detailed draw- 
ings, framing plans complete. All working plans are 
drawn to standard scales. Blue prints for each design 
are available. 



REVERSED PLANS 
Obviously, a plan designed for a lot facing east will 
not result in the best exposure when your lot fronts 
to the west. We will therefore, furnish you with an 
additional set of reversed blue prints, if this change 
is required. Ask us for full particulars. 

SUPPLEMENTARY DETAILS 
Further supplementary details for any of our plans 
will be furnished upon request. 

CHANGES IN PLANS 
Any of these plans can be revised to suit your special 
requirements. 

SPECIAL PLANS TO ORDER 
We are prepared to furnish accurate working draw- 
ings made according to your own ideas and require- 
ments. 

SPECIFICATIONS 
Specifications are statements of particulars which tell 
what you are going to receive in materials and work- 
manship for the construction of your home. The sta- 
bility, quality, and cost of your home will be directly 
affected by the materials selected and the workman- 
ship you receive. Our specification forms are thorough 
and complete. Our trade knowledge is at your service 
— and — we are glad to assist you in the specification 
of materials.

Home Financing Made Easy Under the 
F. H. A. Insured Mortgage Plan 



NATIONAL HOUSING ACT 

Under the terms of the National Housing Act, 
insured mortgages have been made available to 
you. You can now build your own home with the 
certainty of ACTUAL ownership before you. Today 
you can build a home that will be yours in 10, 15, 
or 20 years. 

YOUR RENT PAYS FOR HOME 

The easiest way for you to pay for ( a home is to 
pay for it as you pay rent. The logical way is to 
pay monthly, out of income, an installment on the 
principal and the interest, etc., and thus, over a 
given period of years, pay off the entire mortgage 
and have the house free of all debt. It's very much 
like buying a house and then renting it to yourself. 

SMALL INITIAL INVESTMENT 

Now you can buy or build a house on exactly 
that basis. Your initial investment in the property 
can be as little as 20 percent of its value. You may 
borrow the balance (up to 80 percent of the F. H. A. 
appraised value but not more than $16,000) from an 
approved lending institution, covered by Govern- 
ment insurance, and repay the entire amount on a 
monthly 15asis. In most cases if your lot is fully paid 
for and clear of all encumbrances, the loan you 
can have will cover all costs of construction, etc. 

LONG PERIOD FINANCING 

You may take up to 20 years to pay. You may 
pay in 10 or 15 years, if you like. Each month you 
pay an installment which not only includes the in- 
terest and a part of the principal sum borrowed, 
but includes also a twelfth part of the annual taxes, 
mortgage insurance premium, and the fire and 
other hazard insurance premiums. 

WHAT DOES IT COST? 

Less than the old method of home financing, BE- 
CAUSE YOU MAY BORROW UP TO 80 PERCENT 
OF THE APPRAISED VALUE OF YOUR HOME. That 
means ONE MORTGAGE, THE END OF REFINANC- 
ING PROBLEMS, A FAIR AND GOVERNMENT- 
CONTROLLED INTEREST RATE AND SERVICE 
CHARGE. 



WHO LENDS THE MONEY 

Local financial institutions such as banks, mort- 
gage companies, life-insurance companies, and 
building and loan associations, are in a position to 
finance the purchase if you are able to make a 
down payment or establish an eguity of at least 20 
percent of the total value. If your lot is fully paid for 
and clear of all encumbrances, the value of the lot 
can be equivalent to 20 percent of the total property 
cost. It is, of course, to your advantage to make a 
larger down payment if convenient, but your bor- 
rowing capacity on this new plan, as sponsored by 
the Federal Housing Administration, is 80 percent 
of the total value — offered in one mortgage — and 
repayable monthly like rent. See example below.

NOTE: These amounts are the entire cost for 
homeownership, assuming you build on a lot of 
approved value of $750 to which you have acquired 
title. 

* These figures are based upon an average. There is always 
a variation in assessed valuation of property, tax rates, insur- 
ance, and other factors. But such variance will, in most cases, 
not exceed more than $1.00 per month per $1,000.00. 

Call on us for actual costs and complete data. 

OWN YOUR HOME 

Thus, there is today placed before you a broad 
highway to home ownership. A way that enables 
you to pay for your home, as you go, at a lower 
cost, with all the elements of safety, convenience 
and assurance. 

Today you can build a home, knowing that you 
are able to make the monthly payments, and that 
at the end of the monthly payment period the home 
will be yours. 



Come in and see us. You will not be obligated in any way. We can assist you in making the necessary 
arrangements to properly and adequately finance the home of your choice.
